The global market for manufacturing execution system (MES) has a handful of big players towering over the competitive landscape. This makes it consolidated in nature. The prominent names in the market dominate on account of the quality and durability of their products, which is achieved through technological innovations. Such players are expending money on research and development to come up with more cutting-edge products which are highly automated. The players are also focused on inorganic growth through mergers and acquisitions.
Some of the prominent names in the global manufacturing execution system (MES) market are Schneider Electric S.E., ABB Ltd., Emersion Electric Co., Rockwell Automation, Inc., SAP SE, and General Electric Co.
Based on the process industry, the global market for manufacturing execution system (MES) can be divided into oil and gas, chemical, food and beverages, pulp and paper, pharmaceutical, energy, power, water and wastewater treatment, and others, namely textiles, steel, and aluminum. Of them, the segment of oil and gas contributes significantly to revenue.
Geography-wise, main segments of the global manufacturing execution system (MES) market are Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Among them, North America, currently accounts for maximum share in the market because of increasing thrust of industries in the region to integrate data from ERP and transferring the information to plant floor for effective operation.
Need to Improve Manufacturing Processes Ups Demand
With manufacturing processes increasingly manifold worldwide in response to the demand for various kinds of products, it has become pertinent to up improve production methods. By helping to produce better products in much less time, it serves to bring down costs and improve profit margins. This has resulted in increased demand for manufacturing execution system (MES). Explains the lead analyst of the TMR report, “With MES, one’s system is able to generate realistic production schedules. MES serves to achieve this by monitoring raw materials and parts inventory. This prevents time from being wasted on re-configuring schedules while parts are in transit. Since MES examines production lines and finished products, it uncovers inconsistencies and aberrations and stops them immediately. This brings down wastage of materials.”
Regulatory Requirements in Pharmaceutical Industry Stokes Growth
Yet another factor, stoking demand for manufacturing execution system (MES) market are strict regulatory requirements in pharmaceutical and food and beverages industry. Apart from that, the switch to paperless operations from the traditional paper-based recordkeeping systems in the domain of manufacturing in developing economies of India, China, and Brazil has also led to the uptake of software based solutions such as MES. Manufacturing execution system (MES) are useful in integrating information systems on the floor of the shop with business systems in the corporate offices. Additionally, MES is also capable of collating information from different plant or factory locations to facilitate timely, sagacious decisions.
One factor hindering the global market for manufacturing execution system (MES), on the other hand, is the high cost of installing them. “Coughing up millions for an MES does not necessarily mean you will get more benefit out of it. In fact, most of the times factors leading a company to price their software have nothing to do with their ability to help potential customers,” adds the lead analyst.
